6852 - blah, blah, blah

I don't know why, but I got the urge to make a cartoon out of Newt talking.
(no doubt he's making fun of how pointless many of my entries are.)

I'm really looking forward to The Incredibles.

Good team. A stretchy, a brick, a speedster, invisi-forcefields, ice... looks like what little I've seen is well-written, too.

Dear M. Night Shyamalan,

It seems you can't make a good movie without Bruce Willis. Call him back for the next flick you make. I loved 6th sense, and Unbreakable.

Signs and The Village, while having good bits in the middle at times, had poo endings.

Your Viewer in FL,

Turn Gmail storage into a mountable file system

GmailFS provides a mountable Linux file system which uses your Gmail account as its storage medium. GmailFS is a Python application and uses the FUSE userland file system infrastructure to help provide the file system, and libgmail to communicate with Gmail.

GmailFS supports most file operations such as read, write, open, close, stat, symlink, link, unlink, truncate and rename. This means that you can use all your favorite Unix command line tools to operate on files stored on Gmail (e.g. cp, ls, mv, rm, ln, grep etc. etc.).


Woo! I got my check from Google Adsense! Good deal, I wasn't totally ripped off, after all. A lot of little financial windfalls lately!

Mike from Satan's Laundromat photographs Critical Mass bicycle riders getting arrested Friday night and finds himself arrested and in jail overnight.
"they suddenly decided to start making arrests without warning, penning people in and arresting entire blocks' worth of people, including hapless tourists and people getting off work who just happened to be in the area watching. And they couldn't have been bothered to clean the diesel sludge off the floor of the holding pens where they made us sleep? Someone will pay."
I hope *somebody* catches hell for that.

I'm glad to see that Cap'n Pete in Disney's Three Musketeers cartoon has gone back to having a peg leg. Of course, the novel itself is public domain and available online. (you can always download and print it out if you prefer text on dead trees.)

It's also the origin of GrayPumpkin & Katt's little cow-kitty's name. D'Art! (The first Kitty I was ever really social with.)

Hmm... Hurricane Frances travel projection looks like it's headed this way, around midday Saturday. A lot can happen over the course of a week, but I'd wager it'll hit the states *somewhere*.

Ear still hurty. Brah. Grah. Roogah. I think this is the first earache I've ever had... it's certainly the first I can remember. (I've had blockages before, but no pain.)
